Police said there are at least 14 victims and “many deaths,” according to Sen. Bill Nelson, in a shooting Wednesday at a high school in Parkland, Florida, as local media reported a student was considered a person of interest.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is under lockdown and police are on the scene after reports of shots fired and potential victims, officials said Wednesday.

Police said the shooting suspect was in custody. The individual was said to be wearing a maroon shirt and escorted to the police car, according to WSVN. Video captured of the arrest appears to show officers cuffing the suspect in the grass.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said the alleged shooter was taken into custody “without incident” and was “not a current student” at the school.

The high school scene was still being cleared, he added.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office says Nikolaus Cruz, 19, shot down 17 teenagers and adults. Wielding an AR-15, he killed a dozen people inside buildings on the school’s sprawling campus, shot two more outside, and one more on the corner of Pine Island Road as he fled.

Two more died at the hospital, and 15 more were wounded, many of whom were in surgery at Broward Medical Center or Broward Health North. The Broward Sheriff’s Office is still working to clear all the buildings at the massive school, home to about 3,200 students.
